THE BEST OF ALL
In All Things All The Time
THERE are many GOOD life insurance companies, but among
them all there must be one BEST. THE BEST is THE
EQUITABLE. If you wish to know why, send for: i, the
report of the Superintendent of Insurance for the State of New
York on the examination of The Equitable; 2, for actual results
of maturing policies; 3, for statement of death claims paid in
1894. Then you will know the three great reasons of The
Equitable’s supremacy: First, its financial stability; second,
its great profits and advantages to living policy-holders; third,
the promptness of its payments and liberality of its settlements.
